I absolutely love UWM. At first, I did not want to come to college here, but I soon realized how awesome of a school it is. Not only do I love my major and classes, the friendships I have made are forever.

Overall Rating

I loved the campus compared to the other two school I had transferred from. It is very diverse, decent class sizes, very helpful and polite professors who truly want you to succeed. The nursing program wasn't super easy but with the help of professors and resources, it is more than possible.
